Petra, Jordan. It’s insane. I’ve been all over Europe, but this was the only country I’ve been in the Middle East and it was nuts.

As a side note, safari in Tanzania was a scooch overrated. Still awesome, 100% would do again, but a little overrated.

Mt Fuji.

Schloss Neuschwanstein and the castles around it too, like the one from his family. Its a little bit expensive but damn that dude built coloured lights into the backgrounds that he built in his castle of his favorite operas and theaters. COLOURED LIGHTS. That was 1869. If you’re into gold and glamour, expensive s**t, history and a little bit architecture then its truly amazing.
Bavaria for the win.

The Duomo in Florence is freaking amazing. We went right before sunset when the crowd was basically gone, and it was incredible.

Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia is a serene haven of cascading lakes and waterfalls that look spectacular no matter the season.

I fight with who ever says The Colosseum is overrated.

I was worried I’d be let down by Venice, but it absolutely was everything it was made out to be. Actually, everywhere I’ve been in Italy has exceeded expectations – Lake Como and Milan as well.

Grand canyon.

All those museums in DC by the capitol. They’re free and range from pretty good to world class amazing.

Edit: The Smithsonians, can’t believe I forgot the name.

I don’t care what anyone says, the sheer power of niagara falls is worth visiting. It is incredible even if the town sucks.

Santorini was somehow more impressive to me in person than the social media/Instagram pictures made it seem. Something about being able to see the remnants of an absolutely huge natural disaster was really appreciable.

The part I shouldn’t say is that other islands in the area that are less popular are equally, if not more beautiful and cheaper to stay on.

Everyone keep going to Santorini though. I’ma take my next vacation on another island for less money while I pull up pictures of the caldera.

Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Went for the first time last year and barely had time to see everything in a day. It’s like the Smithsonian crossed with Disney World, with creative exhibitions of actual spacecraft. We even got to speak with actual astronauts.

The Path of the Gods hike in the Amalfi coast. It’s absolutely incredible, the views you get from there are some of the best in the world, also, the Road to Hana on Maui. Highly recommend the Shaka guide app to play on your trip it tells you when to pull off and go look at waterfalls.

The Grand Teton, Yellowstone and The Redwoods.

The British Museum in London is worth every bit of hype for history buffs, with artifacts that span the breadth of human civilization.
